If you do THIS you may be sure that someone feels ATTRACTED by you!
Attraction is a complicated thing because there are many types of that feeling. And for each person it can mean something completely different. For example, it’s possible to have strong feelings towards somebody but without loving affection. Or that some people have friendly relationship with benefits, but they would never consider a romantic relationship. It’s because there are many types of attraction that we may feel and they don’t always happen at the same time and they don’t always have the same form. In this article we're going to present different types of attraction that may exist.
We hope that you like this post and don’t forget to share it with your friends and family.
1. Sensual attraction
The sensual orientation refers to the gender that someone feels attracted to, whereas sensual attraction means the desire of having intimate time with a specific person. This example everybody knows best. It’s the type that appears most often because it triggers at the sight of the person that attracts us.

2. Sensual attraction = physical attraction
Sensual attraction is basically the same as lust. It’s the attraction oriented at the physical aspect of another person that makes us willing to have intimate relations. It’s the most common attraction because you don’t need to know a person to feel attracted this way.
3. Excitation is not sensual attraction
Sensual attraction is not the same thing as excitation. A person can make you feel excited, even though you don’t feel sensually attracted. It’s a biological response that, for some reasons, make you feel excited after receiving some kind of a message from that person.
4. None (or not frequent) sensual attraction
If someone feels no attraction or it happens very rarely, it's a non sensual person. However such person may still have intimate relationships with his or her partner in order to satisfy the significant other, to have kids or because of some other reason. A person that is not completely non sensual but feels attraction seldom may consider himself a gray-asensual. Someone who needs a great emotional connexion before feeling sensual attraction may consider himself a demisensual.
5. Romantic attraction
Romantic attraction refers to a strong desire to have an intimate relationship with a specific person that goes beyond mere friendship. This type of attraction is much stronger as it implies much more aspects. There’s also no need to be in love to feel this attraction, you simply want from somebody something more than just friendship. Physical appearance is less important at that point, it's what you feel for this person that matters.
6. Romantic attraction may match with sensual attraction
Romantic attraction may appear together with the sensual one. However, there are people that need more intimacy to add sensuality to the equation. This will be an example of a demisensual person. It’s true that when you fall in love, physical aspect is a little bit less important. And this makes that you adore every part of the other person, since your love surrounds the whole person.
7. None (or less frequent) romantic attraction
There are also people that don’t experience romantic attraction and those are called aromantics. Someone who isn’t completely aromantic but experiences romantic attraction very rarely may consider himself a gray-romantic. Finally, someone who needs an emotional connection before developing romantic attraction is considered a demiromantic.
8. Objective physical attraction
Physical attraction may be chosen in some different forms. Dr. Heidi Reeder wrote in the Psychology Today journal what objective physical attraction is. It's when you know, objectively speaking, that the majority of people would consider a person physically attractive, even though the person would not feel attracted by his appearance.
9.Subjective physical attraction
Reeder also describes subjective physical attraction. It’s a state when you feel attracted by the appeal of a person and you want to look at that person (it doesn’t matter if the majority of people consider such person attractive or not). This often matches with sensual or romantic thoughts related to that person.
